Picturesque artist’s house in the beautiful Languedoc-Roussillon village

Refurbished in 2018 by renowned Icelandic artist Kristjana S Williams, this four-bedroom former shop in a sleepy French village is an Instagrammer’s dream. Recently shot for Marie Claire Maison, each airy room is beautifully designed with the artist’s own wallpaper and art works as well as quirky found objects and curiosities.

The space
The space:

Downstairs comprises five rooms – a cosy kitchen with large hob and kitchen table, an airy dining room, two sitting rooms and a further reception room which is currently a yoga room.

Three of the bedrooms upstairs are part of a wonderful open-plan space and don’t have doors, so would suit a family better than a group of individuals. There are two double beds, a day bed and two children’s single beds (1.5m)

There is a further double bedroom that is separate.

There is a shower-room downstairs and a washroom with WC and basin upstairs.

Outside is a large walled garden, with two gorgeously scented fig trees (visit in high summer to indulge in the abundant yellow figs!), a small artificial lawn, large outside dining area and covered barbecue.

The village itself is typical of the region – surrounded by vineyards with a small local grocery store selling fresh croissants and French bread and a tapas bar for lazy laid-back evenings.

The nearby lake, Lac de Jouarres, is a picturesque place to walk and paddle in autumn and winter, and a water-sports paradise in the summer with an inflatable obstacle course, paddle boards and pedalos for restless kids and adults. The River Aude is also another wonderful place to walk, canoe or hire a motor boat and there are many pretty villages to visit along its banks.

Homps is a lovely village very close (6min by car) by with some wonderful Restaurants on the River bank.

Olonzac is a bigger village where you can do all of your shopping and it also has good bakeries and shops. Casino is a big supermarket with a organic section and a special delicacy section.

Carcassonne is a is a great city steeped in history, with a huge local market, a castle and many wine bars, design shops.
